    A guy I work with has decided to follow my path and make a niche instagram account that he hopes to grow, and eventually use to start selling shirts. I setup his account to my bot and he gained around 1000 followers in two weeks, but I guess he was going hard at manually following people. I told him he could get banned, he didn't listen so now he hasn't been able to follow people for a few days (or so he says) and it's killed his daily growth. He also went off and a made a retro website using some godaddy service that's taken me back to 2002, complete with a sick visitor counter!!

    I genuinely suggested he go to themeforest to get something better, and spend a day or two learning wordpress. He just blows it off, refuses any constructive criticism, and keeps doing him. I felt like my marketing skills were valuable, but it seems clear to me that people don't see the value in it, and I don't how to change that. Oh well, while he gets his 10 followers a day in his stubborn ways, I'll hopefully continue enjoying my growth at 100 - 200 followers per day. I don't know why I even bother trying to help people.. Thanks for letting me vent lol :D

    So you're trying to train a guy who doesn't pay you for it, doesn't want your advice and you're wondering what's wrong with the picture?

    and when things don't work out for him he will likely ask you, "why didn't you tell me?"

    Hey, its better than someone that constantly begs for your advice / support then refuses to follow your advice or worse still just expects you to do it all for them.

    If he doesn't want your advice just let him make his own mistakes, it can only be a learning experience for him.
